funding for obamacare. this as president obama in his address yesterday claimed the republicans -- blamed the republicans for, in his words, gumming it up. now a powerful republican senator, kentucky's rand paul, is talking about a way to possibly avoid a shutdown. >> people want us to stand up and fight. i'm willing to stand up and fight. we should use the leverage of controlling one-third of the government. we don't control all of the government, but republicans control the house of representatives. they should stand up, use that power to at the very least make this law less bad, delay it, do something we can to protect the american public from this law, or if we do nothing, we're just saying to the president hey, you get your way. >> eric: brad blakeman is former assistant to george w. bush, and former chief of staff. welcome to you both. what will republicans do? >> republicans should play chess and not russia roulette. the strategy is to distort, divide, and distract us, the 3d strategy. we shouldn't fall into that trap. the fox news poll suggests that the american people don't like
